So ever since fall has arrived, I’ve had the itch to bake. This is a little strange for me because normally I do not like to bake. Why, you ask? Number one, there’s way too much required measuring involved. Two, there are a lot of bowls, spoons and cups that get dirty. Three, I’m way too impatient to let the finished product “cool,” for the butter to soften, or for the toothpick to come out clean. And four, the last thing I need is a whole pan/batch of sweets sitting around! SO, when Wayne mentioned it was his co-worker’s birthday, I saw it as the perfect opportunity to bake something yummy. I saw this recipe over on Beantown Baker and thought I would give it a try! Click link for recipe… I followed it exactly except that I used much less frosting on top. I cut ’em up and put them on my festive leaf plate.
The verdict: Hooooly crap these were good! Very dense and rich, mmmm! And yes, I had to sample just one before sending them off. Hopefully Wayne’s co-workers liked them, too!
